Event Description:

University Programs will host an exhibit by Dr. Daina Taimina,

Hyperbolic Crochet, in the Anne Kittrell Art Gallery, October 1-27, 2013.  There will be a reception on Friday, October 11, from 6:30- 8:00 p.m. in the Gallery and the lecture at 7:00 p.m. in the Union Theatre.

This event is free to current University of Arkansas Fayetteville students through the Student Activities Fee, and students must show university ID for entrance. Admission for general public is free and contingent upon seating availability. For special accommodations due to disability, please contact the Office of Student Activities, osa@uark.edu or call 479-575-5255.

Dr. Daina Taimina, Professor of Mathematics at Cornell University, will exhibit crochet models of hyperbolic planes. In 1997, she created a crochet model of hyperbolic space that allows one to tangibly explore this type of geometry. She went on to write the book “Crocheting Adventures with Hyperbolic Planes”. It explains the histories of both hyperbolic planes and crocheting, along with many other parts of art, science, and math. The book and the Hyperbolic Crochet allow one to visualize these extensively different subjects, math and art, in a whole new way. Dr. Taimina will speak on Art and Mathematics on October 11 at 7 p.m. in the Union Theatre.

This event is sponsored by University Programs Anne Kittrell Art Gallery Committee. For more information on this event, contact University Programs Gallery Chair Derick McCollum at upart@uark.edu or 479-575-5255 or Chas Thompson at ct003@uark.edu.
